I stopped in Batticaloa on my way from Arugambay to Trincomalee. When I arrived at the deep sea resort I thought that I was at the right place. I wanted to dive the Wreck HMS Hermes. As a CMAS instructor I have been to over 50m many times. But the Tec Instructor Feli said I need minimum tec 40. I... More

During our Holiday in the east coast of sri lanka, We had a log journey to travel from Trincomalee to Arugambay for Surfing. We did the dives in Trincomalee in the morning and left around 1400 hrs to Arugambay which was about 300km. We were advised by locals that we can spend a night in Batticaloa. We stopped at the...

As an open water diver with SSI deep certification for 40M I was happy with recreational diving until Feli took us to the World of Tech diving after giving us a course on Padi Tech-40. The attention was great, as it was just myself and my dive buddy. What more to do the final dive on the HMS Hermes! Probably... More

My dive buddy and I went to DSR for the weekend to do some diving and what Felician delivered was out of the box! He gave us a training session in tech diving which was followed by sea based dress rehearsals for the main event - the Hermes. Felician was an excellent guide and his wife Renuka a friendly host...

As everyone here stated, it is purely aimed at the diving community -for now- as Feli is expanding to handle bigger groups and the more recreational type of diver. Had a great couple of dives including the Hermes, but because of family we were staying a bit up north near Pasikudah so Feli even picked us up to dive the... More

There was someone to pick everyone up and transport them to the Hotel before we took the trip to Batticaloa. Diving was well organsied. Trimix, Deco gases, CCR support, Boosters,... More

We visited so I could dive HMS Hermes. The accommodation is simple but clean and has everything you need, we had no problems. The diving was superb and Feli knows the wreck like a second home, everything went well and I would recommend Feli highly. The food at the center is cooked fresh to order and is very tasty. We...

As with most people we went here to dive HMS Hermes. The diving was great, and Feli made sure the dives went smoothly. Feli, family, and the rest of the staff made our stay most enjoyable, and could not do enough to make us feel welcome. The food is plentiful and very tasty, the rooms are comfortable, and are what...

Accommodation: From previously seen photos (from Trip Advisor) you could tell, that this is aimed at purely divers and not for holiday makers. Accommodation was basic - but very clean and just what was needed. Each room had AC, shower and bathroom. Food: We opted for the full board option and 3 cooked meals were provided each day. Omelette for... More
